News of Bill Bradford's death on Thursday, December 8th is starting to circulate and, so, I feel able to post on the subject. Bill had wished to die with dignity, in the privacy of family and friends. The libertarian movement has lost an anchor; I've lost a friend who stood by me during one of the most difficult periods of my life. His death is terrible news. The announcement from Stephen Cox is reprinted in full as follows: Dear friends, I am grieved to tell you that R.W. Bradford, founder of "Liberty," died on Thursday, December 8, at his home in Port Townsend, Washington. He was 58 and had fought heroically against cancer for many months. Bill was surrounded by friends and family, and by the good wishes of his many friends throughout the world. An upcoming issue of "Liberty" will feature a commemoration of Bill's life. His work will continue. Stephen Cox For "Liberty"
